Cryptograms to Keep You Sharp

Cryptograms to Keep You Sharp Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Exercise your brain while you uncover some pithy food for thought. Cryptograms are substitution codes--every letter in the code has been replaced by some other letter; you try to find which letters stand for which others. Every cryptogram has a different substitution system. Some hints: Start with the shortest words. Break down long words into prefixes or suffixes. Look for word containing an apostrophe. A chart gives you hints for three letters in each puzzle. The more you solve, the better you get. Its like this:

UKG JBPA UBBJ VITY AB PFAHCG HY WKP LBTPAW FYJ UHWK AIRK

WHY DOES WOOD BURN SO EASILY IN THE FOREST AND WITH SUCH

JHLLHRICWG HY BIT LHTPMCFRP?

DIFFICULTY IN OUR FIREPLACE?

Get smarter and wiser at the same time!

Synopsis:

Crack the code—and laugh out loud! Each of these humorous quotes is encrypted, so you'll have to do some solving before you're in on the joke. There's no better way to give both your brain and your funny bone a workout at the same time. The witty words come from celebrities in politics, entertainment, sports, and literature, including JFK, Ronald Reagan, Joan Rivers, Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Stewart, Amy Poehler, Kurt Vonnegut, and many more.
